IMMERSE YOURSELF IN AN INSTA-WORTHY CHRISTMAS DISPLAY AT CROWN
If you’re feeling festive this holiday season, hop along to the Christmas ArtVo exhibition at Crown Melbourne, an immersive ‘trick art’ gallery that’s the first of its kind in Australia.
Back for its third year ArtVo at Crown is unlike normal art galleries, visitors are encouraged to interact with the artworks and snap a photo with each of Crown’s exclusive Christmas murals, which have been painted onsite. You can even become part of the art and share your photo on social media using the hashtag #ArtVoCrown.
